Do you have a medical degree, an interest in #space exploration and the fortitude to spend almost a year in isolation in the world’s largest desert? Apply to be the 2023 @esa-sponsored research doctor at Concordia research station in #Antarctica🥶 esa.int/ESA_Multimedia/Image…

Remember this stunning LIDAR photo taken by Stijn Thoolen, the 2019-2020 @esa sponsored research doctor at Concordia research station? 🤯🤩 It has won the @NatGeoNL 2021 photography contest and will grace the cover of the December issue! Congrats Stijn! nationalgeographic.nl/fotowe…

This week @NASA Gateway team leaders met with international partner @ESA and concluded a successful preliminary design review for Gateway’s I-HAB. This review is an important step in the development phase of the module. More on our international partners:go.nasa.gov/3HCyaUq

See, feel, move. Can you recognise the @esa experiment @Astro_Raja is running on the International @Space_Station? 🤓 Clue: This @ISS_Research studies how microgravity affects the astronaut's grip and they way he moves objects in space.
This week, astronauts aboard the @Space_Station conducted studies that could assist with clinical management of weight loss, repair of future space vehicles, and diagnosing emerging health issues in space. go.nasa.gov/3oIYROI

Who wore it better? 😆 This technology demonstration, called Metabolic Space, aims to validate new wireless measurement devices for measuring performance and metabolism – simultaneously monitoring oxygen uptake, CO2-output, heart rate & more🩺 #CosmicKiss

Happy Birthday, @Space_Station! 🚀 23 years ago, the Zarya functional cargo block was launched into low Earth orbit. Today, the International Space Station is the main outpost of human civilization beyond the planet Earth. For 23 years, many studies have been conducted.

Take away the clouds and slap an orange-red filter on it and this could be a pic from a mission to Mars. Lanzarote is actually is closer than you might think to the Red Planet. Why @Astro_Andreas & his 'classmates' headed here for #Pangaea course this week esa.int/ESA_Multimedia/Image…
